Welcome to the Davidson Creek Library Learning Commons
Hello! It’s so good to see everyone again!
Have you heard the great news? Classes will be visiting the library again this year. Not only will you be able to borrow great books, hopefully I'll be able to read to you during your visit to the library.
I would love to hear about what you have been reading, as well as what some of your favourite books are. If you need any suggestions of what to read next, I can also share with you some of my favourite titles or you can click here to see a list.
Did you know that you can look for DCE library books on the Destiny website? You can even rate and review books. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the library!

If you do use Goggle to search for information, it is a good idea to evaluate your search results. To do this, you can read the Five W's of Web Site Evaluation. Listed below is a summary of the website:
- WHO wrote the pages and what are their credentials?
- WHAT is the purpose of the site adn is this stated clearly?
- WHEN was the site created? When was it last updated?
- WHERE does the information come from?
